Minor in Economics

Economics Minor — 22 units

Economics is highly complementary with a number of other disciplines and some students may choose to minor in economics while pursuing a major in another field. Students often decide to minor in economics after having already taken several economics courses and realizing that a few more courses will satisfy the minor requirements.

  • Minors must earn a minimum grade of C- in each core course (CR/NC grading is not permitted for core courses).
  • A minimum of 6 upper-division units are required to complete the minor.
  • All coursework used to satisfy the requirements of the minor must be completed with a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
